Traeger chimney cap Stainless Steel Version compatible with any pro series grill, tailgater, elite, timberline & select grills.
Q: At what height should I adjust my cap?
A: The cap is adjustable to allow the heat and smoke from the grill to exit the barrel either slowly (lowered) or quickly (raised). Adjusting the cap will depend upon how and what you are cooking and the existing weather conditions at that time. Traeger recommends about a thumb's width in height as the default setting.
Q: Why would I ever want to raise it up or down?
A: For example; if you are cooking something low and slow, say at 200°F and its a chilly or windy day, lowering the cap will keep more heat inside the grill longer and will help the grill maintain a more even temperature...but, let's say that 4hrs later the wind dies down, the sun is up and the food has evaporated some moisture...you may want to raise the cap height a bit.
It's personal preference....but the cap does add some simple functions that can be adjusted on the fly.
*****CAUTION. NEVER TOUCH THE CAP IF IT IS HOT WITH YOUR BARE HANDS. DO NOT BE A DUMMY. DON'T BE THAT GUY*******
